This project aims to strengthen literacy programs in eight communities in the north of Cameroon. Each community will select and send two people to train-the-trainer and functional literacy sessions that will be held each year for three years. The trainers will be coached and mentored by SIL specialists. They will also help to translate into their own languages key books that deal with the critical problems of life with which Cameroonian communities live in their often dangerous circumstances. A key objective is that the local literacy leaders will be able to run literacy programs without continued input from SIL. The running of unassisted literacy programs is a desirable outcome and is especially important in their fluid security situation.
These communities are among the poorest and most illiterate in the country. They have a strong attachment to their language which is still the main language of communication in their territory.
